The photo color is washed out and not realistic.

  • Summary: I previously had a Canon powershot A570 IS which I loved, so when it died I looked for another Canon model. I use the camera for selling things on eBay so it is important that the photos look like the actual item. I was disappointed to discover that the color is washed out no matter how I alter the settings. On my previous camera, I left it on the auto setting and it was great.
  • Pros: Small size, Easy to change settings
  • Cons: The color of the photos is washed out even on multiple setting trials., No power cord option

  • Excerpt: Brought the camera a few weeks ago as my mini camera to replace my DSLR when I want something compact. choose this camera as a result of it's relevant slightly higher aperture then other ultra compact cameras in it's price range as well as it's zoom range and the fact it starts at 24mm. starting with the fact the camera starts at 24mm, it's great in some cases but problematic at most.

  • Summary: This item is small and handy. If I do not have my iphone I would bring it everywhere. If you need something small and does the work, buy this.

  • Summary: Its a year and two months and a severe lens fault occurring, which at least will mean a two year warranty at £30 would probably be cheaper than me now having to replace it! With another more robust model!!!

Not all that good.

  • Summary: I bought two of these cameras form Amazon for Xmas presents last year for approximately 2/3 of the price it's currently being advertised for. I bought one black and one silver and I must say for me the black was very rough to handle, like holding a sandpaper case! I suppose it's an idea by canon to reduce the risk of this very small camera slipping from your grip, but I much prefer the feel of the silver and the use of a wrist strap.

I like it, but...

  • Summary: Having had this camera for nearly a year, I feel in a position to explain some of the drawbacks I've encountered. Firstly, the flash: it's so near the edge of this tiny camera that it's very easy for a stray finger to partially obscure it. I've had several shots where one side of the photo is darker than the other due to this. The flash is also so near the lens that red-eye tends to rear its ugly head more often than I'd like.

Good camera, but has a few flaws.

  • Summary: I bought this to replace my Panasonic TZ10, which was a great camera but was a little too large to fit in a pocket and had poor low light performance. This camera takes pretty good images in lower light conditions, but it appears that some sacrifices have been made as in good light images can look a little mushy when enlarged compared to other cameras.

Average Camera

  • Summary: It looks and feels good to handle, easy to operate. It is fast and responsive. However the picture quality is pretty average, especially in the auto mode the pictures appear very bright and artificial. My old Sony DSC V1 (from 2004!) which is 5 MP camera takes better pictures. I believe there are similar cameras available at cheaper price.

Great stills camera, poor video.

  • Summary: First of all can we say, that we are big fans of the Canon Ixus range, and have owned several over the last 10 years - we started out way back with the Ixus film cameras. We find the Ixus range great, as we have 2 small children, and we find that taking the Ixus with us means that we get lots of great photographs and video that we would normally miss, as the camera is small enough to fit in a pocket or bag, and so is always with us.
